Former Griffith fashion student earmarked as 'One to Watch' in Irish design
Former Griffith College student Sarah Murphy was showcased in this weekend's Irish Examiner as one of 'the next generation of Irish designers'. Sarah had previously been marked as 'one to watch' by press and industry alike ever since winning six different awards for her graduate knitwear collection back in 2016 while barely out the door of Griffith College. After working for designer Helen Cody, she launched her debut collection at Brown Thomas CREATE in 2017. Having recently been snapped up by Havana (sole Irish stockist of Simone Rocha), Sarah’s designs reflect her affinity for merging traditional craftsmanship with couture details and a modern femininity. As she herself says of her work, "I know how I want someone to feel when they’re wearing my pieces before I know what I want them to look like."
Everyone at Griffith College wishes Sarah continued success with her exciting new career!
